the emptiness between the words

the emptiness between the words
is where the true message lies
do not blink or you will miss it
flowing around you as the gentle
waters of a slow moving stream
carry them along only to be
drawn over the final precipice
falling down down down down
their own weight holding them
under

their truth a buoyancy
releasing them to come to
the edges of the surface
gasping for their lifeblood
a voice to instill meaning
they will be silent no more
